Carrier Logistics promotes VP
Cesario has served at CLI as the company’s senior transportation consultant for the past eight years. In his new role, as the company continues to add functionality and further complexity to its transport management software, he will be responsible for the firm’s software development road map, including enhancements to many operational areas such as dispatch and routing. Additionally, he will spearhead the planning and deployment of customer support and training activities, according to the company.
“CLI already offers an incredible product for LTL carriers, and I’ve been proud to have been able to train and advise our customers on how to utilize the software to optimize their processes and operations,” Cesario said. “Now, I’m not only able to continue in that role. I am also looking forward to helping build on the technology that CLI offers to drive productivity and lower costs for our clients.”
Cesario joined CLI in July 2014 after spending 11 years at CXI Trucking, where he held the positions of warehouse manager and general manager. Earlier, Cesario served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
“John Cesario is the ideal person for the responsibilities of vice president operations at CLI,” said Ben Wiesen, president of Carrier Logistics. “He brings nearly 20 years of experience from both the client side and software side to a role that will be central to our growth and the ongoing development of our highly advanced, in-depth solution for managing the business of an LTL trucking company.”
Carrier Logistics FACTS is the company’s “technology solution for meeting the transportation and freight management needs of asset-based LTL carriers and the last-mile industry,’’ the company said.
“FACTS includes online customer shipping tools, dispatch and driver management, a superior rate engine, cross-dock management, and a full back-office suite that give transportation professionals the tools they need to operate cost-effectively while providing improved freight visibility to their customers,’’ according to the company’s press release.
